I'm Rathes Sachchithananthan and I'm a web developer. If you are interested in learning more about me, you will find the information here.
I started working as a professional web designer and web developer at very young ages. When I was 14 I had my first client jobs and in 2008, at the age of 16, I founded my first own company for web design and development. Since then I have worked with several clients doing quite a wide range of tasks.

This is where my journey in the professional web industry started. Before that, I just created stuff for myself with the idea of promoting my career as a rapper.
- PHP (Laravel)
- CSS (Sass, Less)
- Basic knowledge of UI Design & UX Design
- Requirement Engineering
- Tamil (native speaker)
- German (native speaker level)
- English (proficient user)
- Spanish (elementary)
- Norsk (beginner)
- Japanese (started learning)
- Dutch (started learning)
It took me quite a while to realize that it's better to be a specialist instead of a generalist. On the other side I'm interested in many aspects of tech and web.
Additionally I am focused on the aspect of requirements engineering. My bachelor thesis at university was about goal driven requirements engineering. I adopted this method to use it for the whole aspect of running a business to make it profitable as soon as possible.
Last but not least, I read a lot about AI and Machine Learning. I'm not that far that I would call me pro in this field, but it is a goal to get more into the field.
Here are some open sourced projects I actively work on:
aheenam/mozhiis a Laravel package that contains a simple implementation of a Markdown-file-based CMS.
aheenam/laravel-package-cliis a generator that scaffolds a Laravel package project. Just run a single command to get a full starting point for your next Laravel package.
